Who makes the best office suite? You do!
At the tail end of October, LibreOffice is headed to Seattle, WA for SeaGL, “a grassroots technical conference dedicated to spreading awareness and knowledge about the GNU/Linux community and free/libre/open-source software/hardware.” While we’re hanging out in Washington, we’re planning to have a LibreFest — a community event to bring users, developers, and contributors from the Seattle area together to help LibreOffice by squashing bugs, writing code, and increasing public awareness of this amazing Free Software office suite. The LibreFest will take place on Sunday, October 26th at the University of Washington in Seattle.
At the LibreFest, we’re planning to have two tracks available:
- A Bug Triaging Bee — A fun, community exercise for people of all experience levels, from newcomers to experienced QA Engineers
- A Hackfest — For developers and programmers interested in eliminating bugs and implementing new features
Testing bugs and writing code takes a lot of concentration, so we’ll have plenty of free food and drink available to keep you fueled up and working at peak efficiency. We’ll also be giving out LibreOffice Contributor T-shirts to all participants, as a thank-you for your hard work!
To Sign Up, send an email to qubit [at] libreoffice.org with your Name and T-Shirt size. Let us know if you’re interested in the Bug Triaging Bee, the Hackfest, or both!
